Adam Ant’s fashion style was a unique blend of post-punk, glam rock, and New Romantic influences. The costumes for the band Adam and the Ants were created by Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren. This makes an Adam Ant fancy dress costume a great choice for an 80s costume.
There are a number of styles you can opt for. You can create a pirate-inspired outfit, with frilly shirts, tight leather pants, knee-high boots. Or use a Hussar military jacket, adorned with tassels and a red ribbon tied around one arm. Add hair braids with colourful ribbons.
Adam’s elaborate use of makeup (war paint) with a signature white stripe across his face, added to his enigmatic and visually striking presence, making him an unforgettable fashion icon.
The most popular Adam Ant fancy dress costume is by Fun Shack, which captures his look nicely, without breaking the bank!
